Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of Balance, is an 86 minute 1982 film directed by Godfrey Reggio [born 1940] with music composed by Philip Glass [born 1937] and cinematography by Ron Fricke [born ?].

In the Hopi language, the word Koyaanisqatsi means 'crazy life, life in turmoil, life out of balance, life disintegrating, a state of life that calls for another way of living', and the film implies that modern humanity is living in such a way.
